The Pound won a moment's respite late Tuesday when MP's rejected the so called "meaningful vote" amendment to the EU Withdrawal Bill, which seemingly kicks any threat to the stability of the government out into the long grass, but the next challenge to Prime Minister Theresa May's leadership and the government is already looming over Sterling.

The upshot of the shift may well be as dramatic as the parliamentary procedure is incomprehensible. The bill then returns to the House of Commons again later next week.
Traders will stay tuned into Brexit noise where the UK Prime Minister faces a series of challenging parliamentary votes on her plan to leave the customs union and single market after Brexit, but it will soon be time for the European Central Bank and FOMC. Given that after November 30, the House of Commons looks set to be empowered in the negotiations, it would not be in Barnier's interest to negotiate a harder form of Brexit before the U.K.'s self-imposed deadline.
Mr Buckland replied: "I entirely agree: the Government's policy is to achieve a deal because we are mindful of the points that he and others understand".
